    This was easy enough to follow and turned out really good! As others have said, I also had to cook mine closer to 30 minutes and I used a glass baking dish. This is a very light but good flavored dish and the ginger really does take away a lot of the “fishy” flavor. I’m not a huge fan of fish but this I would eat again!

    The dish was perfect for my husband! He dislikes the fishy taste of fish and seafood. Adding ginger root made him enjoy the dish without having to add tartar sauce! Also, the plastic wrap, to my surprise, did not melt to the baking dish! I am looking forward to learning new techniques to make more delicious and diverse meals! #cookingfor2

    I really wanted to give this recipe a higher rating because the flavors and textures are to die for, and I'm sure that if you make it with proportions that the chef demonstrates with in the videos, it should be fine. However, if you use the proportions from the WRITTEN instructions, you end up with this enormous amount of food that you can't really fit into the pan in the way shown, and which will not cook in that amount of time. First, this is not 4 servings, it's closer to 6, so bear that in mind. Second, in order to nestle the fish into the greens the way the chef shows, you will need something like an extra large rib roast pan, and even that might not be big enough. Otherwise, you'll have to pile all of the vegetables on top, which results in a different cooking time and taste since the vegetables can't really soak in the juices. After over 30 minutes of cooking and even raising the temperature for the final 10 minutes, we ended up having to take the vegetables out and roast the halibut by itself at 400 for another 10 minutes. That said, the recipe is absolutely delicious if you're willing to mess around with the proportions to get it right. I strongly recommend cutting the portions in 1/2 when trying this for the first time.

    New regular dinner for us! Have made it a few times and it so tasty and simple. I have never managed to use the plastic wrap without it melting. Error on my part I am sure. Now I just tightly wrap with aluminum foil only and it always tastes great. A couple of times I have not had baby bok choy on hand so have used other greens instead. Belgian endive works especially well.

    Pretty tasty and we learned a few things from the video, too. It took 35 min to steam the fish, but maybe because we had to use a skillet, since there was no baking dish available in our rental unit.
